The challenges business leaders face today barely resemble those of just thirty years ago. We must either face up to a serious shift in our identities or continue to perish professionally and organizationally at alarming rates. In response to these rapidly changing circumstances, a new kind of organization is emerging: the interdependent-collaborative organization—and all institutions, organizations, and governments are going to need its adaptive, quick-footed, see-around-the-corner capacity. In this book, John McGuire and Gary Rhodes of the renowned Center for Creative Leadership offer a practical guide for achieving feasible culture transformation by helping leaders see how leading the culture and managing the operations are two sides of the same coin.

Transforming Your Leadership Culture provides guidance and resources that help leaders decide what change is feasible, how to set practical incremental targets of change and development, and what tools are needed for navigating the turbulent waters of the change process. Executives must do this change work first, say the authors, leading by engagement and example—with senior leaders demonstrating alignment toward the change they expect of others by discovering and navigating a joint future together. Integrating developmental theory with solid research, the authors show how this approach orients organizations toward a connected leadership capability in which everyone in the organization can share.

Transforming Your Leadership Culture debunks the common myth that change in organizational culture is beyond the reach of mere mortals. It shows how leadership can be an emergent, creative, collective force for change.
